Reminder: Giveaway For Meredith's Birthday - WINNERS

I failed to put a time that I would draw for winners, so I will leave it open until her birthday which is October 3. I will draw names the next day. ( Comment on previous post, please, to enter).

WINNERS October 4 - (I wrote all your names on pieces of paper and drew the old fashioned way. Because so many people wanted the Forget Me Not figure, I gave away the one I ordered for myself, too. I wish I had one for all of you. Each of you who entered will be getting a little remembrance from me.)
Book - Crystal Theresa
FMN figure - Brigitte
FMN figure - Shauna
Calendar - Mary Yee
Calendar - Trennia
Birthday Calendar - Caroline
Birthday Calendar - Heather

Thank you all so much for celebrating Meredith's birthday with me! I thought it was really unusual that the two ladies who won the Willow Tree figures live in the same town in the same state! That was just random chances! What are the mathematical odds??? I will be contacting those of you for whom I don't have your address. (((HUGS)))

MARIA - please email me at I do not have your address to send you a little remembrance gift.

A Giveaway For Meredith's Birthday

In two weeks, on October 3, it will be Meredith's birthday and I wanted to share my love for all of you by having a giveaway. There are no hoops to go through, all you have to do is comment on this post. I have several things to give away and in your comment, please mention what you would like to have a chance to win - all the items or specific items. Please also leave your email address. Anyone can enter - this is not only for BLMs. If you live outside of the U.S., please don't hesitate to enter. I don't mind shipping internationally.

The first item is the Willow Tree "Forget-me -Not" figurine. I have wanted this for so long and everytime I go to the Hallmark store, they are out of them. I finally ordered two, one for a winner and one for me.

Secondly, there is a birthday calendar. I have some similar ones and that is how I keep up with the birthdays of our baby angels. I keep a separate one for friends and family members.

The next giveaway item is a calendar by the Moreheads. They have been drawing children and angels for a number of years and I usually get one of their calendars for Christmas. After the year is over, I use the cute pictures in scrapbooking for my grandchildren.

Lastly, I am giving away my copy of "They Were Still Born."

Please remember our little girl on her birthday in some way by just thinking of her, doing a kindness for someone in her name, or however you choose.

To add to the things I was thankful for previously:

My humble home, small as it is. So many people are homeless...

The Promise of Heaven

A wonderful Labor Day party yesterday at the home of our son

Books - I LOVE books! Wanted to be a librarian but never finished the coursework. Life stood in the way, so I was the next best thing - a teacher.

A full refrigerator & pantry

Our pets - a Pomeranian, a chihuahua/dachshund, and a beautiful soft black & white kitty

Summer fruit

Fresh scrapbooking materials

Little gifts I find on sale that make my grandchildren happy

This is a huge one - my recovery from septic shock in 2008. From what I have read and viewed on medical shows since then, I know that many people do not recover from this illness. I thank God every day for my life.
